I'm an Architecture student and I am in the middle of writing a technical report on the Shard. I am trying to find some structural diagrams for the building (I guess someone must have posted them here at some point) but after a quick search I have not been able to find any. Does anyone remember if any where posted, and if so where about within the thread they will be? (I do not really want to have to read through all 600 pages to find them!!)

Type this into google image search - site:skyscrapercity.com shard diagram
You will get all of the pictures that relate to these two keywords, but only on this site.

I bet if the Shard in the Mirrors Edge game was built instead of the current one, it would have been more dominating in London but wouldn't have blended in with the other buildings though, but I bet it would have been taller as well with a huge observation deck and helipad, possibility for the future perhaps?

Looks gorgeous in those pics. Those upper levels which are exposed to the elements, what happens when it rains? Are they flooded with water?

What happens when it rains up here? It there a gutter on that level where the water is captured or what?

Is the observation deck already open to public?

I don't think so. Journalists have been allowed up there though. And as I was walking past yesterday, there was a small group waiting downstairs at one of the side entrances waiting to go in.
